Matterport: The All-in-One Solution for Architecture, Engineering, and Construction

Scan your job site once with Matterport and you get all of the following outputs:


Supported Outputs

Available now, part of the complete Matterport package, and fully supported. 

3D Showcase
  • Engineers, BIM managers, VDCs, and architects can inspect the site remotely with a virtual tour.
  • The virtual tour is a collection of 360º images deeply connected to the 3D model of the space.
  • Each 360º image is automatically placed in the correct location — no post-processing necessary.
  • Collaborators can use Matterport to create a visual punchlist of tasks that need to be completed. 
  • Scan the same job site at different phases to show progress over time (construction documentation).
  • Explore in Virtual Reality with Matterport VR.

  • Take simple measurements (dimensions) in metric or imperial units. Learn how.
  • Measure remotely — no need for a return site visit just to measure.
  • Measure dimensions of objects, rooms, or even the entire job site.
  • Measurements are accurate to within 1% of reality. Learn more.
  • Workshop measurements are made on the 3D mesh. You can also download the point cloud and measure in ReCap.
stCBKSSdw1G_-_3.jpg 2D Photography
  • Take simple flat 2D photography from your Matterport Space.
  • Take as many as you like and use them for both print and digital formats. Learn how.
  • Download your 2D photos as simple PNG files. Learn how.
  • Use for simple team communication or include in the turnover package for your clients.
SxQL3iGyoDo_-_360_snapshot.jpg 360º Photospheres
  • Download as many 360º photospheres from the Matterport Space as you like. Learn how.
  • A 360º photosphere is the same spherical, panorama imagery that you see in 3D Showcase.
  • Open with a specific tool for editing and viewing 360º images, such as Pano2VR.
obj-preview.png OBJ File
  • The OBJ file is a true 3D model of the space. Matterport combines depth data from the camera with visual data from the 360º image to create a colored, textured 3D mesh that is the OBJ file.
  • Matterport samples the OBJ file to create the Dollhouse View in 3D Showcase.
  • 3D developers and VR enthusiasts can use the OBJ file to kickstart their projects with a 3D model of a real-world place. Learn more.
  • Open in 3ds Max, Maya, or other 3D software.
  • Download a sample OBJ file.


Beta Outputs

Available now in beta, soon to be released in production. 

The following example outputs are from the International Congress Center in Munchen. Explore the 3D Space.

ICM_colorplan_000_resized.jpg High Resolution Floor Plan Image
  • Get a quick top-down view of the job site and everything inside it
  • Access the floorplan from inside 3D Showcase (the web player) or through a separate download.
  • Use in AutoCAD as a tracing element.
  • The floorplan is just a unique, orthogonal view of the 3D mesh from about 6 feet (1.8 meters) up in the air. Make your own views/slices of the 3D mesh by downloading and manipulating the OBJ file yourself. Learn more.
  • Download a sample floor plan image.
ICM_ceilingcolorplan_000_preview.jpeg Reflected Ceiling Plan Image
  • Same as the floor plans, but a quick view of the ceiling and everything on it.
  • See ventilation shafts, plumbing, rafters, insulation, and more.
  • The ceiling plan is an orthogonal view up at the geometry in the ceiling, taken from about 8 feet (2.4 meters) above the ground.
  • Download as a separate 3D asset from your Matterport Space (beta). Contact us.
  • Download a sample reflected ceiling plan image.

  • Customers can use both the Leica BLK360 laser scanner and the Matterport Pro2 3D Camera together to create a single Matterport 3D Space.
  • Use the Leica BLK360 when you need accurate 3D data for measurements and construction planning. Use the Matterport Pro2 3D camera when you need high quality visuals and speed, but the 3D accuracy is less critical.
  • All of the same outputs as listed above, but with better 3D accuracy (point clouds, ceiling plans, and floor plans) where you have used the Leica BLK360.
  • We plan to release this integration in 2018.
  • Read the press release.
  • Read the FAQ about the future Matterport-Leica integration.
  • Learn more about the Leica BLK360.
